This past week, the Royal Television Society hosted a panel with the cast and crew of Loki featuring Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, and writer Michael Waldron, with director Kate Herron (via Zoom). The team shared stories from the set, insight into the production of the series, and their personal experiences throughout filming.
When asked how it felt to no longer be the only actor to portray the role of Loki in the MCU, Tom Hiddleston shared, “I’m a temporary torchbearer. I’ve always thought that. It’s a great role. It’s an archetype, the trickster god, the agent of chaos. I’m just here interpreting that for the time being. Loki has been here for centuries and will be here for centuries more and I’m just stepping into that silhouette for now.”
He also went on to share that the presence of the variants and the TVA allowed him to dive deeper into the character than ever before. “This idea of somehow the [Time Variance Authority] confronting Loki with the shape-shifting nature of his identity and asking him ‘Who are you?’ I found it a new avenue to explore with this character I’ve been playing for a while,” he continued. “It felt original. It didn’t feel like we were repeating.”
